Simhawk Inc. announced the launch of it online marketplace for buyers and sellers of flight simulator time and training services. The marketplace, which brings the benefits of the on-demand economy to the world of simulator training, can be accessed online at simhawk.com and is focused on providing customers with a more efficient way to buy and sell simulator time and training.
“Over the past 10 years, the number of simulator operators and training providers has grown significantly, resulting in more options and alternatives than ever before.” said Chris Weinberg, Founder and CEO of Simhawk. “Simhawk enables customers that need to buy simulator time or training services to find the best available options based on a variety of criteria, eliminating the need to contact multiple providers, and providing customers with access to a global network of providers in order to take advantage of changes in supply and demand.”
Simhawk also increases revenue and asset utilization for simulator operators or training service providers, that have excess capacity or last minute availability, by providing them access to a larger global network of simulator customers in a way that reduces their risks and costs.
“Our unique process enables simulator operators and training providers to pursue opportunities that they might not be aware of or that they previously considered unattainable.” said Weinberg, who was most recently the Chief Information Officer at FlightSafety International. “The Simhawk platform allows sellers to respond rapidly to the frequent changes in global demand for simulator time without having to take focus away from their existing customer base.”
In addition to serving existing users and operators of full flight simulators, by taking advantage of excess capacity, Simhawk offers flight schools and universities increased access to full flight simulators. This enables them to take advantage of the safety benefits that the devices provide and to offer valuable additional training such as airline transition, type rating, and ATP CTP programs.
Simhawk plans to continue to enhance its platform with additional features and functionality that will provide value to both buyers and sellers of simulator time and training.
